Chunks of chicken on the bone marinated in yogurt and delicious Indian spices - grilled to succulent perfection. This delicious Tandoori Chicken recipe uses a classic, vibrant Indian marinade that can be incorporated into many other dishes! It is super flavorful, charred, and smoky- just like at your favorite Indian restaurant!
Tandoori chicken is something that has pretty much put India on the global food map, several years ago! Chicken pieces marinated in yogurt and powdered spices, grilled in a clay pot tandoor till the outside is beautifully charred and the meat is juicy, succulent and falls of the bone. Any Punjabi, for that matter anyone who has tasted it will sing enough praises of it to make your mouth water. Instead of being basted with plenty of butter as it is traditionally done this recipe is a healthier but equally tasty olive version. It is the perfect starter to a North Indian meal.
